A general solution for the transient temperatures and thermal stress is obtained for a right circular cylinder with internal heat generation varying exponentially with the radius by use of Hankel transforms. Curves for the maximum thermal stresses are presented for diameter ratios up to 1.2 and for a variety of internal heat-generation rates for internal heat-generation transients with both cylinder walls maintained at zero reference temperature at all times.
